Revisiting the Shell Lake Massacre

Today in this special episode, we take a look back at one of the early Canadian True Crime episodes - the story of Saskatchewan’s worst mass murder. You'll hear a never-before-told story about why this episode was very different from the rest.

Early one morning in 1967, 21-year-old Victor Hoffman was in the midst of a serious mental health crisis, a crisis that would have tragic consequences for an unsuspecting local family.
